"More volume please!” says Phil Honey-Jones from Honeygene, ready to launch into the next number called “Only 17”. “This one’s for the teenagers”, he says, indulging in a quick joke with his daughter Charlie Allen before setting the crowd rocking with their unique sound, a fusion of Acoustic / Alternative / Rockabilly, complemented perfectly by Charlie’s beautiful classically trained voice. The music is uplifting, a fusion of different influences including Johnny Cash, the Rolling Stones and Blondie. There is also a strong reggae influence, apparent in the first track, “The One Thing”, accompanied by TJ Tarantino on bass and Adam Lewis on drums. They describe themselves as “dreamers”, and “Full of Dreams” is the fifth track, starting with a subtle acoustic intro until the drums and bass pitch in with a much heavier sound. “Truckin’ Love”, the highlight of the evening, finishes with a flourish of drums and everyone on a high.
